Easter and Passover Inspiration

What are you planning to make, order and/or eat this Easter and/or Passover?

I haven’t figured out what to make for Western Easter next weekend .

I will make lamb and spanakopita, and Easter bread, on Greek / Orthodox Easter (April 24th this year). Thinking about stuffed grape leaves with avgolemono sauce, as well.
This Easter bread/ Tsoureki Muffin recipe worked well for me.

I always have asparagus for both holidays. It’s so springy!

I think I might do asparagus next Sunday!

My favorite way to have it is steamed, then room temperature with some lemon. That’s good because you can make it ahead. My daughter loves it roasted with olive oil.

I sometimes braise them in water with butter.

First egg was too soft- I scraped it into a pan and scrambled it.

Trying a cola or cola pineapple-glazed ham tonight, with scalloped potatoes and maybe Cretan spinach hand pies called kalitsounia

For our Easter early dinner today: Grilled lamb chops (because they were barely affordable), pommes Anna, roasted asparagus, a variety of deviled eggs and of course, the ancient carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. This year I made some cupcakes too, and tinted some of the frosting green and decorated with patches of ‘grass’ and stuck itty bitty chocolated bunny shapes on the ‘grass’. I’m ditching the Hollandaise sauce (for the asparagus) this year and not we’re not having the traditional ‘Eggs El Tovar’ that we usually have for breakfast/brunch. How many Easters is this we’ve been shut in because of the pandemic?—THREE—I’m going to scream! And it is snowing!:rabbit2::snowflake: Thankfully I have fresh chives for the potatoes, yay!

With an abundance of opportunities to cook I’ve been an uninspired slug so nothing is on the menu. I cleaned out a cupboard this AM. :muscle:
